Apple Seeds Fifth Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.4 to Developers [Update: Public Beta Available]

by

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.4 update to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the fourth macOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta and almost two months after releasing macOS Mojave 10.14.3.

The new macOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after the proper profile has been installed from Apple's Developer Center.


macOS Mojave 10.14.4 brings Apple News to Canada for the first time, allowing Canadian Mac users to access news stories in French, English, or both.

The update also includes support for Safari AutoFill using Touch ID and automatic dark mode themes in Safari. That means if you have Dark Mode enabled, when you visit a website that has an option for a dark theme, it will be activated automatically. You can see a demo of the feature here.

macOS Mojave 10.14.4 will likely be in beta testing for the next several weeks as Apple refines features and works out bugs. After that, it will see a release alongside iOS 12.2, watchOS 5.2, and tvOS 12.2.

Awesome logic, lets not ask for improvements for anything so the world can live in limbo in its current state, progress is a ****** concept, right?

If you aren't using https://www.apple.com/feedback to log your issue, Apple isn't going to know about it.

I think those of us that come here because we actually enjoy Apple products should just abandon these forums. Let the negative nellies stew in their never-ending spew with no one but themselves to listen. All the live for is to thrash something ... anything. Of course Apple isn't perfect, but neither are you.

And still... No Nvidia Web Driver ‍♂️

I think it is safe to say that you (and we all Mac users) can forget about Nvidia. Forever.

Apple has long standing, well established channels for reporting bugs and requesting features. You should try using them, since MacRumors forums is not one of those channels.

ok fair enough but Mac forum is not only to praise apple either
you have the right to like apple but we also have the right to "complaint" or express our opinion
if you accept apple lower standards, I don't have any problem with that
what I don't understand is why some people get mad when all we want is an improvement

you should understand that there are people out there that might see things totally different to the way you see things
that's why I accept your opinion and point of view even if is the opposite to mine
but I respectfully disagree

there is no reason to get upset
if you are fine with the way apple is doing things, that is perfectly fine
but don't judge others or throw them down the bus
simply because we want something a bit better
we are not asking for the world or "perfection", we simply want something that is acceptable
and what apple been offering lately is totally unacceptable

this is nothing personal against apple fans or apple
we love apple we simply want apple to return to normal

basically before mr crook sorry mr cook era
like it or not with all due respect, apple has lower their standards

the problem is that some people simply can’t handle the truth
and wants to shove apple down people's throat
if we said anything , we are negative and we are whining and complaining
well I got another word for you, we are realistic and we are not blinded by fanaticism
we are sincere and we call it like it is, we love apple as much as you do
but we can't clap when apple do something wrong

just because apple has a report bug page, it doesn't mean we can't talk about it any where else
we have the same rights you have

let me flip the coin and give you an example of your previous comment #9

how bout , I should stopped coming here because there are a bunch of delusional apple fans
that don't want to hear the truth

I will continue to come here regardless, I understand everybody has a different point of view
you just have to learn how to accept other persons opinion just like I accept yours

peace
